Parents,

I highly encourage you to keep a routine in place for your child while they are at home during this time of uncertainty. I have included several examples.  The purpose here is not to impose a structure but to offer ideas for how to break up the time. Think of it as a menu of options; pick and choose what works for your children and your family.  I have also provided several resources that provide online, interactive, fun activities to keep students thinking and learning.  

Hard Copy of Assignments:

Each week, the bundle activities will be printed and available for pickup at the following locations/times. The principals and instructional coaches will be responsible for making the hard copy bundles and setting up the pickup stations.

McAdams JH pickup each Monday from 12:00pm – 4:00pm

Communication:

Parents will receive a phone call from me once a week to check-in and ensure lessons are being taught and to offer guidance or suggestions on behaviors that might arise during this time.  Parents will also receive weekly behavior management tips.
